"The 1920s in North America and Europe saw a continued fascination with the Middle and Far East. Popular culture in the 1920s was saturated with imagined images of these “mysterious” and “far away places.” For example, an incredibly popular romantic film starring Rudolph Valentino and Agnes Ayres called The Sheik was released in 1921. The next year, British archaeologists Howard Carter and George Herbert discovered the nearly intact tomb of King Tutankhamen in Egypt. Likewise, fashion of the Jazz Age did not escape the lure of exoticism: expensive textiles like silk would never be unpopular and Asian inspired motifs were all-the-rage."
